The Olight Perun 2 is a powerful EDC Flashlight and Headlamp. Hiking is easier (and lighter) when you carry multi-use items. So having the 2-in-2 combo is certainly a sweetener.
Field test and review – Olight Baton 3 Pro Max 2500 Lumens Rechargeable EDC Torch. With a maximum output of 2,500 lumens, it has the power required for even the darkest of nights on the trail.
I am not a trail runner, but I am an avid hiker. So, it was recommended I give the RIBELLE RUN a go. One of my mates (thanks Dale) is an avid trail runner so, SCARPA also sent the SPIN INFINITY for him to thrash out on the trails. Here’s what he thought of them.
The SCARPA Ribelle Run offers fantastic protection, heaps of cushioning, exceptional grip, and great durability. Check them out it if you are looking for a shoe that can take you on technical ground with confidence.
Darl Bars are handmade with activated, slow roasted chickpeas, organic seeds, and fragrant spice blends. They are baked with a touch of organic brown rice syrup and macadamia oil to create a soft, melt in your mouth ‘darliciousness’.
